Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet med studien var att beskriva arbetsterapeuters erfarenhet av att använda bedömningsinstrument. Metod: Studien genomfördes med en kvalitativ datainsamlingsmetod där tio yrkesverksamma arbetsterapeuter intervjuades. Vid intervjuerna användes en semistrukturerad intervjuguide. Analys av den insamlade datautfördes med en kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultat: Genom analysen uppstår våra fyra kategorier som beskriver arbetsterapeuters erfarenhet av att använda bedömningsinstrument. KategoriernaTid och kunskap, Klienters olika behov, Struktur och klinisk erfarenhet samt Bedömningsinstrument oförenliga med journalsystemenvisar ett resultat som indikerar på en hög arbetsbelastning inom yrket. Av studien framkommer ett nytt fynd som beskriver hur arbetsterapeuter också väljer bort bedömningsinstrument då de inte ser dem som kompatibla med journalsystemen, något som bidrar till att arbetsterapeuter upplever stora svårigheter att dokumentera sina bedömningar på ett strukturerat och tidseffektivt sätt. Slutsats:Av det resultat som presenteras i studien dras slutsatsen att arbetsterapeuter idag behöver få mer tid avsatt i sitt arbete för att få möjlighet till att använda sig mer av bedömningsinstrument. Detta för att kunna öka sin kunskap om bedömningsinstrument men också för att kunna administrera dem på avsett vis, då främst vad gäller dokumentation och journalföring.

Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim of the study was to describe occupational therapists’experience of using assessment tools. Method: The study was conducted with a qualitative data collection method where ten occupational therapists were interviewed. During the interviews, a semi-structured interview guide was used. When analyzing the collected data, a qualitative analysis was used. Result: Based on the analysis, four categories emerge that describe the occupational therapists' experience of using assessment tools. The categories Time and Knowledge, Clients'Different Needs, Structure and Clinical Experience, and Assessment Tools and the Incompatibility of the Journal Systems show a result that indicates a high workload within the profession. This study reveals a new finding that describes how occupational therapists also exclude assessment tools, since they do not see the assessment toolsas compatible with the medical record system, which contributes to the fact that occupational therapists experience great difficulties in documenting their assessments in a structured and time-efficient manner. Conclusion: From the results presented in the study, it is concluded that occupational therapists today need more time allocated in their work to enable the use of assessment tools. This is to be able to increase theirknowledge of assessment tools, but also to be able to administer them in the intended way, mainly regarding the documentation and medical record keeping
